a bill exactly like this sitting in the united states senate. harry reid passed it back in july, and republicans refused to vote on it. boehner, why don't you vote on that? the time for complaining about this deal, totally over. >> nobody can get 100% of what they want, and this is not simply a contest between parties in terms of who looks good and who doesn't. >> don't you think republicans need to be careful about pushing back on this for the good of the country? if no deal is struck this year, president obama, what does he have? well, he's got the inauguration coming up. a big platform. he's got the state of the union address coming up. a big platform. he is going to have a better chance to have the american people on his side. president obama urged all members of congress to get some perspective over the holiday weekend on this. >> everybody can cool off. everybody can drink some eggnog, have some christmas cookies, sing some christmas carols, enjoy the company of loved ones, and then i'd ask every member of congress while they're back home to think about that. think about t
and in the worst prison and and since picked up in july on the iranian border and his whole family is under house arrest will he's beaten and fortured and a convert fromy islam because of his faith. he made an agreement that he would no longer run the house churches it is since he's been to iran nine times it is it an orfan age. but this time the guard got involved and so he's been interrogated and treated like a national security threat. that is the same kind of a charge that iran tried to levy against the pastor usef. it is death unless you peek out. this is an american citizen. our state department has acknowledged that now why did it take so long for them to acacupon knowledge -- acknowledge he was there. fox news broke the story with the information and we got that attention and people start to ask the state department. it is that decision you make as we represent the fam foom here in the united states. his wife and two kids. they are in america and not iran. he was visiting his family. we have to make that decision when it is it he is enough risk to put his name out there publicly and ask,
that it did. i was not on that trip, so i do not know specifically. i also visited libya in july. i also visited in september after the attack in benghazi. i can speak to my own experience. secretary clinton has said, all those of us as senior leaders are responsible for what is happening. i certainly hold myself accountable. i certainly had a lot of time to think about sharper questions i could have cost, sharper focus i could have provided. >> on your visit in july,, or september, the debt issue and specific come up? the folks on the ground say, we're worried about what has happened was security? >> no, there's no specific discussion about it. i did talk to ambassador stevens in general terms. in march of 2012? >> i am certain it did. we certainly emphasize the importance of not only improve in the security capabilities of the libyan interim government at that time. we offered a number of programs to help them build those institutions which are made one of the greatest weaknesses of the libyan it from government. -- interim government. >> your pretty sure that the issue came up, you ju
in july that says 98% americans, income up to 240,000 would continue to get tax cuts. above that, people would may more. they made excuses, the bill wasn't right. we have the bill in the house, the bill in the senate. the bottom line is when the speaker put on the floor last week the bill that would say, okay, how about everybody up to $1 million gets a tax cut. couldn't even pass that. we're stuck. we're really stuck. >> the house gop said they put a bill forward in august. so everyone sort of covering themselves saying we got a bill. we didn't ask to go over the fiscal cliff. i'm kind of glad at 3:00 this afternoon, both sides of the house leader smip and house are meeting. do you think that there is the will to go in and say we've got to solve this. guys, we have just got to solve this. we cannot riske putting america back into a recession. consumers are feeling badly now, but were feeling okay. do your colleagues get how serious this is? we could send america to recession? >> i believe in the senate that we do. we're having a lot of very important, very good, positive conversations b
experience. i've also visited libya -- >> in july? >> i visited in july but i also visited in september after the attack on benghazi. so i can speak to my own experience. you know, went secretary clinton said all of his senior leaders in the department are accountable and responsible for what happened at it certainly felt myself. ihop the remains of my former colleagues back after the attack in benghazi. had been in the middle east on a trip and cut short to come back with them. and all that long flight home i certainly have a lot of time to think about sharper questions that i could've asked, sharper focus that i could have provided. spent on your visit in july or september, did you -- >> july, yes. >> did that issue come up? did the folks on the ground say to you we are really worried about what's happening here with security? we've made a number of requests? >> there was no specific question about that. i did talk to ambassador stevens about the security situation but we didn't talk about specifics at the time. >> secretary clinton met with the prime minister in march with -- you know if t
right now between what has happened in benghazi and the attack and what happens back in july of 2011 when the rebel commander was assassinated. that event precipitated -- still not liberated. people were thinking, this is the end of the revolution. and come back and like everybody out. in fact, what happened was that most often, the head of the in d.c. the time use that as a means of essentially quieting his detractors and consolidating power and helping move forward the onslaught on tripoli. to the extent that now we have what appears to be a progressive , more forceful, and i'm saying that qualifying, i don't have as much detail as i would like. new prime minister, you know, there's an opportunity here to maybe consolidate and something better will come out of the seven near future. anyway. i'm very happy to take any questions. >> thank you. i know that many of us have questions. as the way into the microphone comes to you identify yourself. >> yes. we hear a lot about tribal militias wreaking unpredictable havoc here and there and making things very and predictable and messy. can
the right to own guns is more important. opinion was essentially divided in july after the deadly movie theater shootings in aurora, colorado. 47% said it was more important to protect gun ownership. 46% said it was more important to protect gun rights. a big part of the debate stems from the number of guns in this country. there are more than 297 million privately-owned firearms in the u.s. according to a congressional research service report. the gun industry here is thriving with profits doubling during the great recession. u.s. firearms remain one of the most successful industries in the world. stock prices of the two largest publicly traded firearm companies skyrocketed from the president's inauguration to the latest high. smith & wesson up over 260% and industry leader sturm, ruger and company up over 500%. just to give you an example here of comparison. you would have made less money if you bought a share of tech darling apple which had a lower gain than sturm, ruger & company, but you didn't have to buy stock to win. industry jobs commonly reward employees with a $140,000 salary
that vote back on july 25th, the democratic bill is, quote, a revenue measure that didn't originate in the house so it's got no chance whatsoever of becoming law, end quote. that's what i said back on july 25th. the only reason we ever allowed that vote on that proposal is i said at that time was that we knew it didn't pass constitutional muster. and the democrats were really serious, they would proceed to a revenue bill that originated in the house as the constitution requires and as i called on them to do again last week. to repeat, the so-called nate bill is nothing more than a glorified sense of the senate resolution. so let's put that convenient talking point aside from here on out. last night i told the president we'd be happy to look at whatever he proposes but the truth is we're coming up against a hard deadline here and, as i said, this is a conversation we should have had months ago. and republicans aren't about to write a blank check or anything senate democrats put forward just because we find ourselves at the edge of the cliff. that wouldn't be fair to the american peop
talked about this is a couple of years ago when we hit hit it in july and i was dead wrong. i was entirely dead wrong. i thought congress would make sure we wouldn't lose our aaa debt rate. >> and we did. >> and -- yeah. i figured certainly logically that yields would go up on bonds. and that the stock market would fall and just the opposite happening. what happen this time to the markets still have patience. you know, rinehart talk about that bang moment when countries are able to continue to issue really cheap debt for a long, long time. sounding like forever and boom. it stops. i don't think that will be this moment. but sooner or later, the world's financing capability and -- intentions and -- stop. >> what do you do right now? i think a lot of people who were watching don't understand necessarily what impact hitting the debt ceiling would necessarily mean to them or to the nation's finance. personally, i think there is a lot of pier mongering in washington and i don't think it is necessarily that big of a deal. what do you do with your finances right here? what are you in
we have for advertising and push it forward into june and july to define him in the battleground states. other candidates, bill clinton in $100 million we have for 1996, did the same thing. this was a real gamble. but it really paid off. the romney folks are never able to recover. the definition that the obama people had established with the dominant one in the campaign. host: this is from "the boston sunday globe." two days before election day and then the piece goes on to say, looking back, to your point, the candidate never defining himself. and then overestimating his ground game. on the ground game side, they were worth about their own bravado about their own organization. part of it was, i think, a genuine ignorance about what president obama had going on. the romney campaign had a triple a round game. obama campaigned out a ground game that was led the 1927 yankees. it was up against a perhaps all- time great ground game. i do not think the romney folks appreciated that. a lot of the post-mortem pieces that we have done, talking about the obama ground game -- part of it is
well. >> there you go. >> let's hope on the 18th of july, in the year 2013, you and i are sitting here celebrating nelson mandela's 95th birthday. >> can you imagine? i think we will. >> let's hope. >> fingers crossed. thank you, nadia. really appreciate that. >>> it is still -- it is still -- it will still be in the air, but a little closer to the ground. the shuttle "atlantis" soon to go on display in florida. we'll show you the plans next. productivity up, costs down, time to market reduced... those are good things. upstairs, they will see fantasy. not fantasy... logistics. ups came in, analyzed our supply chain, inventory systems... ups? ups. not fantasy? who would have thought? i did. we did, bob. we did. got it. because for every two pounds you lose through diet and exercise, alli can help you lose one more by blocking some of the fat you eat. let's fight fat with alli. ♪ >>> okay. let's get you back now to the white house. and you see that is washington, obviously. and you see the new york stock exchange. we're keeping an eye on the stock exchange. it is down now. it is down n
begin with a traffic stop back in july. >> i don't have marijuana. >> i don't smoke marijuana. >> gregg: a female officer was then called to the scene to perform a cavity search on both women. the officers say it was necessary because they saw the suspect throw what may have been marijuana cigarettes out of the car. women say they were molested, their rights were violated. was the search unconstitutional or did police really have probable cause here. joey jackson, vicky ziegler, former prosecutors. very sensitive subject. a lot depends on the videotape. i not sure you can discern critical issues? >> there is a lot we don't know certainly. when i looked at the video i saw some invasive procedures. it appeared that this female officer had her fingers in the backside of this woman. she went underneath her pants, underneath, we don't know if it was under her underwear, it appeared it was more than a frisk. more than a pat down allowed by the law. terry versus ohio you are allowed to pat down if you believe there is contraband but this was egregious. it was done on a public highway in front
rockets on july 4 or maybe setting up another nuclear test around new year's. you know, we go through these cycles. we assume that one day we are going to get them back to the negotiating table, we try to do that, and then they turn around and they break their promise. we are right back where we started from. my point is that i think we should really stop thinking about what we can do to handle this situation. rather, we should accept that the north koreans control the table on this. heather: so do nothing? >> well, what can we do? the chinese and russians don't help us on sanctions. they have been ineffective because china that dan. you know, when you look at it, everything that we have tried after the bush years has been a failure. now, during the bush years in the early part of that administration, it puts real financial squeeze on the regime. but then they drop it because they have this fantasy that if we can just sit down one more time with the north koreans, suddenly we will have a deal that will make all this go away. it is not how the world works. the north koreans are getting

rank in the foreign service career ambassador and became deputy secretary of state in july of 2011. she is only the second serving career diplomat in history to become deputy secretary and ambassador burns served from 2008 to 2011 as undersecretary for political affairs as assistant secretary of state for near eastern affairs from 01 to 05 and and esther jordan from 08 to 2001. ambassador burns served in a number of other posts in the foreign service in '82 and putting the executive secretary of the state department and a special assistant secretary to christopher albright and acting director of principal deputy director of the state department policy planning staff. ambassador burns is the recipient of the two presidential distinguished service awards and a member of department of state awards and all well learned. thank you. thomas nides is the deputy secretary of state for management and resources serving as the chief operating officer of the department. prior to joining the administration, mr. nides was the chief operating officer of morgan stanley from 2005 to 2010 before joining m
for liberation who elected a pro-american government in july, who sought greater u.s. assistance to treat their wounded, train their national security forces come to secure their borders, build their democratic institutions, and expand the rule of law. libyans did not want al qaeda militias running amok in large parts of the country. that is the reality we now face. this is the broader failure of the administration's so-called life footprint approach toward libya. regardless of whom the president nominates to serve in his cabinet, we will continue to ask these questions and demand answers and accountability. i would like to concur with senator mccain. i thought the report was very detailed and the recommendations good and solid in terms of how to better understand the intelligence and run it, how to improve security on the ground, and there is much we can learn from this report. here is what we do know -- we know nothing about president obama before, during, and after the attack. they're making two movies about his use of in the bin laden rate, and he deserves that. it was well executed a
jefferson seemed to have changing opinions on god. both he, though, and john adams died on july 4th, 50 years to the day of the declaration of independence. >> well, it is coincidence, but john quincy adams, who was president at the time, thought it was a sign of divine benevolence, that somehow the fathers would be gathered up, the apotheosis of adams and jefferson on the 50th anniversary in 1826. and it is a little -- i mean, if you wrote that in a novel, you know, you'd kick it back and say a little too -- they're guilding the lily unquestionably. but i think it was also the beginning of our first moment of kind of founder chic that, you know, they died -- i think at that point there was only one remaining signer alive. there were very few. and so the fact that they were gone was a kind of mythological almost benediction to what they worked so hard for. and i think -- i wonder sometimes whether john adams would ultimately be pleased that he had to share the headline or think, you know, dammit, jefferson did it again, you know, he stepped on my story. bush 41, who is giving his wife r
that this past july. beautiful experience. >> juliet: and what is your next climb going to be, young man? >> the next climb is january 12 to the 17. we're going up to mount washington to do ice climbing. >> kelly: oh, wow. >> juliet: i have to ask you, we sit here and we complain over our lives sometimes when we have everything and we are able-bodies, we've got our legs. what is it about you that makes you able to be so strong and have such a -- so brave and so positive? >> you know, i believe that i could have handled the situation either way. i could be absolutely miserable or i could be positive and try to help. just like i said before, i was given that second chance and it's kept me positive and all i want to do is be able to help out these families. >> kelly: keith, god bless you and thank you for your service to this country. >> juliet: yes, thank you. >> kelly: you make us all very proud and to donate no the special warriors foundation, go to what we're going to show you righto to our web site. you are a remarkable man. god bless you. >> juliet: let us know how it all goes. >> abs
from julie. why can't the government run the country the way i run my household? i pay my bills on time and i have a budget. that's a tweet. >> eric: stop being dems and republicans, citizens of one country. that's a fantastically accurate treat. it's both sides pointing the finger. kind of laughing, going back to the districts, they're all making their 175 grand a year, they're spending 124 days on vacation. the cadillac insurance policy. >> juliet: let's go to other headlines. russian president putin is trying to make a political point at the expense of orphans. just a short time ago, putin signed a bill that bans americans from adopting russian children. it's retaliation for a u.s. law cracking down on russian human rights violators here in the united states. one american family in the process of adopting is now left in limbo. >> these children are not available to international adoption until after they've been on a domestic registry for at least eight months. now, in our son's case, 22 families, russian families, came to see him and rejected him because of his blood line. >> juliet
and children there have been dealing with this since july. and we have been working with them figuring out, kelly, when is the right time, if any time torques take this public to try and help. you have to weigh a lot of different factors. we did that because of the conditions. at she referred to, in these prison. this is a prison where the sentence is only part of your punishment. just being there is a punishment. and he's been vaguely charged with these national security offenses, which are the worst offenses to be charged with in iran. >> jordan, those national security offenses was for being the pastor of a home church network and he said he would no longer be the leader of that but continue to try to help people in need? >> for being a muslim to became a christian when he was 20 years old. he made an agreement but the iranian revolutionary guard got involved. for the first time since he's been going back and forth but it's because he's a muslim that became a christian. >> what can you do to get him home? >> we have to speak with his wife able to do the interviews and connect the family
attack. tell us about your injuries. >> july 2011. i lost my left leg completely the worst part was the inection ifs i spent seven months in the hospital battling those. >> you were seven months in the hospital and as soon as you arrived back herance i understand it on u.s. soil you were 53 days in the intensive care unit. and christina, you were by his side. >> yeah. >> the entire time. >> yes. >> every day. that couldn't have been easy. >> no, but i mean when somebody you care about is that sick what do you do? you don't walk away. >> she dropped everything like quit school. left her job. she take care of me. >> you guys are young. it's incredible to have this experience and to have this level of dedication to each other at this age. have you been through a real trial. so, derek, what did you think last week when you heard that you had won this contest for your dream wedding? >> i guess the past 17 months have been all about me. i know it's our wedding but now it's time for the next chapter where she is in the focus. >> what's your dream wedding going to include? >> everything
back in 08 and was working in july, i think, he suffered cardiac arrhythmia and passed away at his desk. people watching closely remember mitt romney and jim messina tweeting condolences and the obama campaign shut down for the day when alex died. what was meaningful was it's unfathomable. he was of the age that swept obama into power. not politically silent, but somewhat motionless and actually came out in full force and helped create this identity and they were as much a part of it that they supported and it just seems profoundly unfair that he didn't make it to see at least the end of the 2012 election cycle. >> talk about the process of how newtown changed the complexion's content of the list. >> we added essentially a second cover to this issue. we use that to acknowledge the victims of newtown. to point out that this is a celebration of life. there is no way to express the horror and the that occurred in that tragedy. our decision to acknowledge newtown in a context that we gave it was simply the only meaning we can scribe to at this moment. we have meaning for decades and decades
